    Linda, Tammy, Sally, and family, We are so sorry to hear of Danny’s passing. I learned a lot from Danny when I worked at the implement dealership. Many times over the years he has came into my store. We had some good visits. In fact, Danny and Jimmy were in just a few weeks ago. You have our condolences.

    Danny always knew what was going on in Marion, and when Leonard & I came to visit, they were busy all the time. He was a great Husband, Father, and Grandfather. He was loved by all, and he will be missed by everyone, because he was loved by everyone who knew him. Our Prayers are with Linda and their Family🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

    I’m so sorry to hear of Danny’s passing. I knew him from dialysis. I saw him in later years after his transplant and he always went out of his way to say hello and ask how my health was. He was a great guy. He will be missed.

    Linda and girls! I was shocked and heartbroken when I heard yesterday i”of Danny’s death. Just doesn’t seem possible. When I told my kids about it, Brent remembered Danny coached his and Britt’s ball team. And said that it was at your house that he learned the secret of the Cracker Barrel triangle puzzle. Please know that you are definitely in our hearts! Much love!!!!
